The Irishman has been acclaimed as a masterpiece, one of Martin Scorsese’s most brilliant movies. This crime thriller with a glittering cast follows Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro) as he recalls his past years working for the Bufalino crime family. Now older, the WWII veteran once again reflects on his most prolific hits and, in particular, considers his involvement with his good friend Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance in 1975. With Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Jesse Plemons, Bobby Cannavale and Anna Paquin.

“There’s an enormity to almost everything about The Irishman: the casting, the killing, the Iditarod run time.” — Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
“I heard all sorts of huzzahs about Pacino—and he is wonderful—but it’s Pesci who thrilled me to the core.” — David Edelstein, New York Magazine
